Berries for Breakfast

Berries for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, and Dessert! Oh how I love raspberries. This is my first bowl of the season. They have such a short season, so as soon as I see them I get all excited and try to eat them every day. These came from Watsonville, Ca. They are the famous Driscoll Farms, famous for strawberries also. I don't like strawberries nearly as much....unless of course they are from the Farmer's Market or straight out of the garden like the ones we had when I was a kid. I don't know why it is but I like all the things that have a very short season....Figs and Pomegranites are two of my other favorites and I overdose on them both when they are available. Maybe it is because growing up we only had things to eat that were grown in the garden or were in season in the area where I lived. Long before things were shipped in containers from all over the world, and we could have whatever, whenever...but in my opinion most of it has no taste. So I am off to eat my berries, and think about how I will have them again...maybe with some yogurt at lunch, in my salad at dinner...and another bowl tonight. Yum!


  1. Here's where we differ! I love berries but don't particularly like raspberries!! Strawberries and blackberries are my favs. So you can have my share of raspberries. Enjoy!!

  2. Oh I'm glad to hear that. If you were here right now I would be generous and offer to share, but I really don't like to share my raspberries. For my dessert tonight I am having a slice of lemon cake, with the berries and some cool whip. I'm a big pig when it comes to my raspberries!

  3. Gather ye raspberries while ye may.
